PSC Plus

PSC plus generic

The PSC plus is further level of PSC you can strive for after you have completed the standard PSC Award. There are three PSC plus programmes you can choose from: IT Skills, Enterprise or Negotiation.

If you think of the PSC programme as being a letter 'T', the PSC Award provides the horizontal breadth across five or more skills areas, whereas the PSC Plus Award provides the vertical depth into a single skills area.

The current plus workshops on offer are listed below and graduates of the PSC programme who attend five or more of these workshops in a single category, and complete the assessment criteria (which will likely be a reflective essay or short presentation) will be eligible to receive the newly established PSC+award certificate which is also added to your HEAR degree transcript. Those currently working toward the standard PSC Award are still welcome to attend PSC+ workshops if the topic is of interest, and their attendance stamp will count toward the standard award. To find the dates and times of these workshops, download the app  or visit the programme page.
